. that was not true about lincoln. so he did really let stephen mallory do it. i'll say one last thing about mallory. if there's a create similar of him -- and maybe it's not, maybe it's a positive thing -- mallory was determined to lay the groundwork for a permanent confederate states navy. so he did things during the war not to achieve immediate objective, what do we need to do today and next week, but how can i lay the groundwork, the foundation of a naval infrastructure for the next 50 years? like a naval academy, for example, which he founded and which probably was not necessary. >> well, from reading both of your books, i mean, what i've learned, i think, on this subject is that davis was sort of surprisingly -- whether through channels, whether through mallory or not -- was surprisingly free-wheeling about green lighting technology, innovation. he got to production of ships in a remarkably quick time. when you say that he went from 0 to 50 in a very short time -- >> i would say for him he didn't get in the way, and good for him for not -- >> not a bad thing. and lincoln sort of liked it. as s

page, stephen moore. he's out with a new book "who's the fairest of them all. the truth about opportunity, taxes and wealth in america." first of all, fiscal cliff, are you hopeful and does it sound like what they're close to might be fair? >> it depends on -- this is such a moving target in terms of what the final negotiations will be. i always predicted near midnight december 24 or december 31 they will reach a deal. the question is whether it will be something good for the economy and something i had in my book, does it really make sense to be raising tax rates when we have a high unemployment rate. one of the point i make in the book the fairest system of them all would be a flat tax, something steve forbes talks about in the 1990s keeps rates low and broadens the base and makes everybody pay their fair share. >> let's go to the book, in fairness, one of the arguments you make is that the president wants to make everybody poor. is that fair? >> well, i don't know if he wants to make everyone poor but -- >> equally poor. >> let me put it like this. a good tax system tries t
tax hike if we don't act. for weeks stephen has been trying to get the president to come up with a fair, reasonable and balanced solution so we don't go over the cliff. the president thinking he has some sort of a mandate after his reelection has been less than reasonable. in fact, this president has proposed more and more spending and more and more tax hikes in his proposals to the spreerk while the spreerk is -- speaker to is trying to deal with our $16 trillion debt, now $16.4 trillion. the president just can't take yes for an answer. he must think if he keeps slow walking these proposals, the republicans will get the blame and members of his administration have even revealed that they would be more than happy if we went over the cliff. what kind of cruel christmas gift is that? after the speaker and the president exchanged offers this week, house republicans are looking at having votes on two competing pieces of legislation as early as tomorrow. the first is legislation that passed this body over the summer, deeply flawed legislation that every democrat in this body supp
